Andrew Levine and Howard Raphaelson successfully obtained a $900K settlement in a labor law case for a deserving client of the firm. Our client also received nearly $200,000 in compensation benefits bringing the total recovery to over $1 million.
Our client was injured when working in the construction of a new luxury Brooklyn hotel. He was not provided a safe place to work and was injured when he tripped over loose materials that were scattered about the job site while he was descending a ladder.
Our client sustained a fractured shoulder and an injury to his knee. The matter was litigated in Kings Supreme Court and resolved at a Mediation before Hon Justice Hurkin Torres.
Construction workers are owed a safe place to work. Profits should never be favored over safety.
